''Captain Video and His Video Rangers'' - Misc Ep 4

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

OK, so "Captain Video" has generally aged very badly, but most of what I've seen of the series has a certain charm to it and kinda fun to watch. However, this 1950 episode is just plain unwatchable, due to stereotyping and a general lack of sci-fi themes. This should only be downloaded by DuMont Network collectors...everyone else should run for their lives.

Subject: A gem of a fiasco, a delightful disaster
Some have said that this is a bad C-V epp, as if such a thing were possible.

Enjoy the irony of a public service announcement warning the young, impressionable audience of the perils of prejudice, on a show with Asian stereotypes of both the "Oriental" and "Arab" kind.

Experience the jaw-dropping “WTF” of a young Frank Sutton, long before his 'Gomer Pyle, USMC' days, with his eyes taped over to form a cellophane epicanthus and doing a bad Charlie Chan.

All this and more awaits, if you have 28 minutes and the nerve to click “Play”

Subject: I uploaded this garbage. Can you forgive me?
Worst episode of the four that are uploaded here. While the production values and writing would later improve, this episode many major problems, including: it's a sci-fi episode without any sci-fi. Sorta like those 1960s Doctor Who episodes where they they went back to caveman days or the crusades, but without the quality those Doctor Who episodes still had.

I'm a forgiving person....I mean, really, I'm the kind of person who enjoys "Dusty's Trail". But this episode is just plain terrible.

As much as I like the DuMont network, I cannot recommend this episode to anyone, unless they are a classic TV collector....and this barely counts as "classic TV".
